Update on Danis Esther

Danis says, "Many thanks for the efforts of Kiva to provide me with assistance. As a result, I was able to acquire new equipment." She has been very happy since receiving her Kiva loan because she was able to buy a photocopier. Now she has more customers, which translates into revenue.

For this reason, Danis is applying for a new Kiva loan so that she can buy a CPU and upgrade her equipment, thus enabling her to serve her customers better and provide them with faster responses in terms of technology. Her customers are the reason for her to be in business.

About Fundación Mario Santo Domingo

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
